Creative Challenges

A couple of weeks back, I came across a challenge on the "A Million Memories" blog. that caught my eye. It was a sketch challenge and a color challenge combined. I had an idea to scrap some of the many love notes my son gives me, so I shopped my stash for the papers & embellies I needed. Even though I didn't make the deadline to enter, I still wanted to play along. I love a color challenge, but this one was a challenge for me. Even though I had all the colors, I probobly would not of thought to combine them together. I was quite pleased with the result. So...here is my layout:

Using this color pallet:

and based on this sketch:

There is a new Challenge For February up on their blog now and it looks pretty cool...
Here is my latest layout for Let’s Scrap. My DT stint is over and I am now a CDT (contributing design team) member. Just about the same access and responibilities and still getting a preview of the upcoming sketches. They are pretty sweet, I must say. It seems like so long ago that I did this layout. These were our first snowmen of the season. We didn't have a lot of snow then and now we have enough to build a hundred snowmen. Lol! I used so many different papers that were out of the norm for me and came up with such a cool combination. I have to say, that this is one of my newest faves. I have been so patiently waiting to share! Here is my take:

Based on this sketch (that I flipped on it's side):

I was snowed in today (again!), so I got to work on a couple more challenges for the Blog Hop.( I will share soon!) Less than 2 weeks and it will be over. Time flies when you are having fun!
Stay warm!!!

Happy Scrappin'!!!
